AE : Inspirations

4680298158_233a1e1e28_b

S E E I N G : Hearts. I've been working on keeping my eyes open and looking down when I look through the lens. Totally inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts.


Creaturecomforts

B R O W S I N G : I've been checking out some serious visual inspiration via Creature Comforts. Be warned...this is one of those sites that will lead you on a ton of additional visual adventures.

D O C U M E N T I N G : A Mini Diary from Marta of martawrites.com. I love the simplicity of this little book. Currently it sits on my desk and I grab it from time to time and jot down my answers. I feel no pressure or obligation to do it daily.


Quilt

P U R C H A S I N G : After seeing some awesome quilts Jamaica has been making I commissioned her to create one for Anna. I just about cried when I opened up the package and immediately sent her an email thanking her for creating an heirloom for our family. Handmade = good.

P L A N N I N G : Love how Liz did this wall in her office. Great post including more information and a free template for your photos here.

    Lovely inspiration as always!! Koodos on the exercising (it is always so hard to fit it in) Both you and Cathy are inspiring me to get back at it (plus the 20 lbs I have to lose)
    Have a great day

    I am going to start that little 'dear diary' book today. It's June, my little boy will be a 3rd grader soon, and I have so many thoughts I need to just jot down before I forget them. Thanks, Ali, for all that inspires you. Thank you so much for sharing those joys with us.

    I have an album I made that is like the mini diary. I enjoy not having to think much.

    Ooh, does this mean you're about ready for the new website launch? Also, I've been meaning to ask...I heard in a Paperclipping Roundtable that you were able to purchase the rights to Life Artist and were thinking about selling it as a PDF download...do you know when/if that might be happening? I'm so excited!!

    We are getting closer to a launch...no date set as of yet. And yes, I am making some adjustments to the Life Artist files...it likely won't be until the fall :).

    Ali,
    I love the links you posted today. Thanks so much. And, I love the hidden story in your story. I just listened to a talk by Brene Brown and one of the things she said was 'tell your story and love who you are in the process.' It is the way I want to live and work and love and I so thank you for being an inspiration on this journey.
    Kelly
